Intelligently divided into 15 chapters under 5 broad thematic parts, Professor Malik’s anthology provides a comprehensive, up-to-date analysis of politics in the 21st century from a southern, largely Indian perspective. In addition to the traditional themes, the more recent and still evolving issues are also well covered, including neoliberal globalization, feminism, minority rights, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), new media, environment and pandemics, along with state responses involving violence, surveillance, incentives and propaganda.

Dilemmas in World Politics is a very interesting endeavour. It attempts to create a trans-disciplinary framework on understanding the dynamic interaction of the various forces (geopolitical, geo-economic and developmental, as also partially geophysical) affecting global order and human living. I reckon this as a new way to look at the challenges at the social, cultural, political and economic interfaces of the world order and also the global developmental governance whose pillars are marked by the Sustainable Development Goals.
